Export document comparisons
In addition to exporting the differences between two versions of a document as comments in a PDF, you can now also export the results as a Word document in track-changes mode. This allows you to easily accept or reject the edits and finalize the document (for FineReader 15 Corporate only).

The latest improvements in ABBYY’s AI-based OCR technology provide higher accuracy for Japanese, Korean and Chinese characters and better automatic tagging for PDF and PDF/UA creation. The intelligent detection of text-layer quality for digitally-created PDFs allows for more accurate results when converting into editable formats.
